I totally agree with you. It is getting so irritating to think your getting a great deal but that deal is just used to bait you into spending more money and if you don't do it right now you are going to lose out. The sad thing is, they are making money doing that. I've even thought about doing it myself. But after reading your post and seeing how someone else feels about the matter, I'm thinking twice about the ethics involved. Thanks.

Although many internet marketers use one-time offers as part of their strategy to generate more sales, it really doesn't bother me all that much. I think the goal of many online marketers is to make as much money as they can and if they are offering quality information to back it up then they should do so however they choose. Taking advantage of one-time offers from the gurus who you have bought proven, successful products from in the past may prove to be more worthwhile than those you haven't.


The problem is that many of these one-time offers are from someone I am buying my very first product from. Mostly, I just don't like the strong arm tactic. It feels like a big thug is whispering in my ear, "Buy Now, or you'll be sorry."

Actually this came up again, exact same formula, different guru this time -- Joe Vitale (hey, he and Joyner are friends, no?). I purchased something from him (I haven't read yet, so I can't recommend) for $27 and I think there were THREE consecutive one-time offers where I could save HUNDREDS of dollars taking the offer.

Sorry guys, I really only want to buy ONE item, look it over and see what IT offers before I pony up the big bucks. Sure, they say you can get your money back if you don't like it. But I can also KEEP my money in the first place.
